I just received my copy of Kidney Living in the mail and was pleasantly surprised to see your story! I just had a similar article in the Londoner this morning! I had my first transplant when I was eight and just received my second one on March 9th from my cousin by marriage! I have been blogging about it for a few months now! I loved how similar our stories are and I hope you are doing well! Take Care, Megan www.thejellybeanexchange.blogspot.com

How did you learn about your kidney failure? What I mean is, who gave you education about it? Did it come from nurses, support groups, doctors? I am writing a paper for one of my classes and would like to base it on your story. Is that okay with you?
Thanks for your question, for starters i am flattered! your more then welcome to write a paper on me.
All my education came from both doctors and nurses. AND my own research and as i like to call it “investigating” ahhaa . I have grown up in the hospital so have always been very hands on. I really like to know every detail of my health. As for “renal failure education”, i was in a odd way very fortunate. This was not my first time around the kidneyfailure block. I was on dialysis in 2001 for a few months before my first kidney transplant, so a lot of the education was already there. New medication, treatment way, dialysis machines etc were more the education i,again by choice.
